1. Next Step donations. Goodwill donations. USPS mailings. Trip to the shredding people. Errands.
2. The Deke and I used a gift card at Laughing Planet we found and enjoyed food served in bowls. Mine was Indian, built around brown rice and chicken. The Deke's was comfort food, built around mashed potatoes.
3. Steve, Debbie, Loren, Jay, Sherri, Father Bingham Powell, Mark, and Alex dropped by Sixteen Tons for the impromptu get together. Pliny, the Elder was superb. (Does Pliny, the Elder ever makes its way to the Atlantic?) The conversation rocked. Many good farewell hugs. It was a good way to remember all the mirthful times we've had drinking beer and yakking with each other and friends at Sixteen Tons. And, of course, Thomas was the consummate tap man.
